Very tasty korean

Visited today with my husband. I had kimchi chikae (kimchi soup) which very tasty made me think of Korea. Good price-lunch offered. Great service. But if I could advise is staff should say or speak some korean easy words which so traditional to customer that would be more lovely.

This was our first visit to a Korean restaurant and we were blown away. The food and service were fantastic and it was also very good value. The waitress suggested various things off the menu after asking what type of food we liked. Recommend everybody goes !!

I have walked by this restaurant several times and always found it closed. A few weeks ago, on a Saturday I found it open. So I stopped by. There was a £5.00 lunch special for kimchi soup (I love kimchi soup!). i found out from the waitress that there are new owners and they are now open for business. I... More

Took 40 mins before we got our kimchi, place is quite small so you'd think it would be quick but took forever for some BBQ mixed shrimp and squid + ox tongue. Will not be returning. Nothing special.

It was the first time we ate something Korean and we went for grill. It was excellent - the seasoning was splendid and the meat was super soft. I was really surprised by the quality of it! I would rather not go for see food grilled as its taste does not seem to benefits so much from the seasoning and... More

That was just not forthcoming and when what we thought was our starter arrived with our mains we knew we were banging our head against a brick wall Food was good but atmosphere lacking and service not brilliant

Hello Phil, thanks for visiting our restaurant and taking time for a review. I find it a great shame that you couldn't enjoy the experience with us and I apologise for the confusion. Our menu does not have anything under 'starters' title (instead it goes e.g. Soup, Rice, Special dishes...), which we thought would be clear to our customers that... More

My partner and I are pretty regular at the Korean Grill, however with the recent change of management we thought an updated review is in order.
